ffwD: Creamy Mushrooms & Eggs

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

When I first read the title of this week’s assignment, I figured we were making some type of omelette, which is fine because I enjoy mushroom omelettes. However, after I read the recipe, I definitely knew I’d enjoy this dish because I’ve made a similar appetizer-like recipe from Smitten Kitchen, creamed mushrooms on chive-butter toast, and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Other than substituting chives for rosemary and using mainly baby bella caps instead of an assortment of mushrooms, Dorie’s recipe was extremely delicious, and it was filling enough as a main course due to the ruffly poached egg on top and thicker slices of toasted challah bread. This is definitely a make-again recipe and one that should be kept in your back pocket in case you need a dish in a hurry.

These creamy mushrooms & eggs were made as a part of French Fridays with Dorie, a group of bloggers who are cooking their way through Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table: More Than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours.

    This looks divine – has all the components I love! I only recently managed to make decent poached eggs and would love to try this. I love anything on toast. I would much prefer to use chives instead of rosemary, too.

    I love mushrooms in scrambled eggs so I know I’d love this. Would be perfect for a quick dinner or a nice brunch!

    I found it filling enough for a whole meal too. Seems way too big to be an appetizer. I used the mini brioche and they are fairly big. I keep thinking about the Smitten Kitchen cookbook looks like a good one.

    I can’t really see the egg. I assume the white on top of the mushrooms is the egg. I like the idea of slapping the whole thing on top of a piece of toast.

    Yeah, another winner! Like the idea of shaking up the herbs…excellent adaptation🙂 Have a lovely weekend!

    It does look interesting, but I am not a poached egg fan. I am not sure I could eat it as is. The mushrooms and toast part though sounds fabu!

    Good treat! I would totally enjoy this. I often have leftover rosemary bread, and I’m thinking that might be a good base. Yum!
